In this groundbreaking book, the author presents an overview and synthesis of the history of preaching from a Catholic perspective. He places the major movements and historical currents in preaching that have occurred in the Christian era and places these developments in context. Fr. DeBona offers special emphasis on the emergence of the "new homiletic" in the twentieth century and examines in detail the inductive methods of preaching.
